Thriving Through the Arts.

Arts In Reach empowers teenage girls and gender expansive youth ages 11 to 22 through inclusive, creative community.

AIR is a Safe Space

We value inclusivity and kindness over competition and status. AIR is a supportive community where teens feel safe to express their authentic selves and take on challenges through the arts.
